Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 Stand-Mount Speakers
Ratings & Reviews
Way better than they have any right to be!
Having been an audio buff for over 45 years, I've owned a lot of equipment; some of it pretty pricey. After trying a small pair of Harbeths on my desktop, I began to see what people were raving about. I sold my large floorstanders (ACI Jaguar LFM's) and bought a pair of Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 and a pair of stands. The imaging, depth and width of soundstage in my large room amazed me. What impacted me even more was the beautiful tonality of these speakers. I do use a subwoofer for big orchestral pieces with deep bass, but for much of my listening, I wouldn't need one. I know it's way over-done, but I'm hearing new things in recordings I've heard hundreds of times. The only thing I would trade for now would be bigger Harbeths, although I'm not sure that would even be a big improvement. Highly recommended!
